Real-life hero: Clint Eastwood saves man from choking

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Eastwood was a life-saver on Friday.

The 83-year-old Hollywood legend was attending a Pro Golf Association party in Pebble Beach, California when he noticed tournament director Steve John was choking.

“I was eating appetizers and drinking water and I guess they threw a piece of cheese in that was not gonna work down the same pipe as the water and I just choked, I was choking,” Steve said. “Clint could see that I was choking. And he just grabbed my arm, turned me around and performed the Heimlich on me and saved my life."

Eastwood told a local newspaper it was the first time he performed the Heimlich maneuver..

Steve says Eastwood wasted no time and jumped right in to help.

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
